I've been writing novels for over fifty years. I was lucky enough to miss the big wars and not get shot, but lucky enough to grow up among the heroes who had served in them and learn from their example. I have lucked into things continuously. I have done things which have seemed appalling at the time,disastrous even, but out of them have come another story or a deeper knowledge of human character and the ability to express myself better on paper, write books which people enjoy reading. Along the way, I have lived a life that I could never have imagined. I have been privileged to meet people from all corners of the globe, I have been wherever my heart has desired and in the process my books have taken readers to many, many places. I always say I've started wars, I've burned down cities, and I've killed hundreds of thousands of people - but only in my imagination! From being attacked by lions to close encounters with deadly reef sharks, from getting lost in the African bush without water to crawling the precarious tunnels of gold mines, from marlin fishing with Lee Marvin to near death from crash-landing a Cessna airplane, from brutal schooldays to redemption through writing and falling in love, Wilbur Smith tells us the intimate stories of his life that have been the raw material for his fiction. Always candid, sometimes hilarious, and never less than thrillingly entertaining, On Leopard Rock is testament to a writer whose life is as rich and eventful as his novels are compellingly unputdownable.

Description :  Dopo aver conosciuto un successo travolgente, lo scrittore Craig Mellow si sente inaridito. Vive sul suo yacht ormeggiato al porto e perde tempo nella grande New York, così lontana dalla sua Africa. Laggiù, le grandi proprietà della sua famiglia sono perdute. I ricordi degli avi, che avevano vissuto per più di un secolo con il fucile a portata di mano, in un trionfo di diamanti, oro e avorio... sì, perfino i ricordi con cui egli ha costruito il suo primo romanzo sembrano svaniti. Così, quando la World Bank gli propone di tornare in patria per una missione dalla quale potrebbe anche nascere l&#39;ispirazione (e il coraggio) per un nuovo romanzo, Craig riesce a vincere le incertezze che pervadono la sua vita e parte. Dopo la rivoluzione, la sua patria africana ha cambiato il regime politico. Ovviamente hanno cambiato colore anche gli appetiti internazionali che mirano alle ricchezze di quella terra meravigliosa. Alla World Bank gli avevano detto che sarebbe bastato tenere gli occhi aperti e riferire: invece sulla sua strada si parano - amici e nemici - Tungata Zebiwe e Peter Fungabera, due ministri del nuovo regime, due leopardi in caccia nella notte. E passo dopo passo Craig si vede sprofondare in una travolgente avventura che fa vorticare attorno a lui, come in un caleidoscopio impazzito, avidi politici e feroci guerriglieri, la World Bank americana e i servizi segreti sovietici, le tremende armi della più moderna tecnologia e i tesori dell&#39;antica civiltà africana. Per fortuna, c&#39;è l&#39;appassionata Sally-Anne a incrociare il suo destino: una donna che si rivelerà assai più di una formidabile e intrepida fotografa amante della natura.

Description :  Da oltre tremila anni, nel cuore nero dell’Africa pulsa uno straordinario mistero, nato dalla mente e dalle mani di un uomo e poi sottratto agli altri uomini grazie al letale abbraccio di un fiume indomabile e di una natura brutalmente ostile. Quel mistero è la tomba del faraone Mamose, uno scrigno di rocce e di tenebre concepito dallo scriba Taita per celebrare la potenza del suo sovrano e per conservarne in eterno le immense ricchezze. Orgogliosamente convinto che nessuno riuscirà mai a violare il maestoso sepolcro, Taita ha lanciato la sua sfida ai posteri, lasciando una sottile traccia di enigmatiche indicazioni, vergate su un fragile papiro, che illuminano i segreti della tomba e indicano la via per raggiungerla. E l’appassionante sfida è ancora aperta per chiunque sia tanto coraggioso (o tanto folle) da volersi cimentare con i tenebrosi fantasmi di un remoto passato: per lo spregiudicato sir Nicholas Quenton-Harper diventa una eccitante scommessa; per l’avido collezionista Gotthold von Schiller un delirante anelito all’immortalità; per l’affascinante archeologa Royan Al Simma un’orgogliosa conferma dell’insuperata grandezza del popolo egizio... Un tornado di bramosia e di desiderio investe allora la tomba del faraone, ne fa scattare le trappole mortali, scatena gli istinti più oscuri e feroci, imprigiona colpevoli e innocenti in un inebriante vortice di possesso. E ben presto tutti scopriranno che il nemico vero è proprio lui, Taita, che pare aver atteso trenta secoli per poter infine scatenare una caccia al tesoro tanto pericolosa quanto travolgente...

È il soffio della rabbia a tenerlo in vita, nonostante le orribili ferite e le mutilazioni. È il desiderio di vendetta a bruciargli dentro come il vento del deserto, e a spingerlo verso il suo destino. Perché lui è il temuto Avvoltoio, e ha un solo obiettivo: uccidere Hal Courteney e tutti quelli che ama.<br />Hal Courteney incarna la quintessenza di una vita vissuta pericolosamente: avventuriero insignito dell’ordine del Leone d’Oro, ha per moglie una nobile guerriera etiope che combatte al suo fianco, possiede un cospicuo tesoro e un ancor più cospicuo numero di nemici. Hal è convinto di aver seppellito per sempre il suo peggiore avversario, l’Avvoltoio, responsabile dell’ingiusta condanna di suo padre. Ma le loro strade sono destinate a incrociarsi ancora, in modi rocamboleschi e inaspettati, in una sequenza di inseguimenti e capovolgimenti di fronte che trovano il loro teatro ideale in una Zanzibar esotica e affascinante, coacervo di influenze occidentali, arabe e africane: un’isola feroce e ammaliante in cui tutto è possibile e tutto è concesso, e dove si può vendere e comprare qualunque cosa, anche la vita.<br /><br />Un ritmo mozzafiato, ricco di azione e di passioni travolgenti: amore e odio, onore e vendetta, paura e coraggio si alternano incessantemente in una trama che non lascia scampo al lettore... <br />Il Re dell’Avventura è tornato per ammaliare i suoi lettori con un nuovo, sorprendente capolavoro.<br /><br />Con Il leone d’oro il maestro incontrastato dell’avventura inaugura una nuova, entusiasmante stagione creativa. Affinché l’incanto della sua Africa raggiunga con sempre più energia i milioni di lettori che da quasi vent’anni attendevano il seguito di Uccelli da preda. <br /><br />ENTRA A FAR PARTE DEL CLUB DEI LETTORI DI WILBUR SMITH SU:<br />WWW.WILBURSMITH.IT<br />CURIOSITÀ, ANTEPRIME, GADGET E CONTENUTI GRATUITI IN ESCLUSIVA
